The course provides exemption from up to 9 papers of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). The course has also been re-accredited by the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA).
Many graduates also undertake further study, proceeding to a Master's degree in accounting or ﬁnance.
The course offers ﬂexibility in the accounting areas in which you might choose to specialise. There is an emphasis on international developments in accounting and ﬁnance, and an opportunity to study a foreign language at each credit level.
You will be also able to develop practical skills through the use of accounting software such as Sage, and the Financial Market Suite (FMS). The FMS utilises the Bloomberg platform, a state-of-the-art teaching and research resource used widely by leading global financial institutions.
Teaching methods focus on active student learning through seminars, workshops, exercises demonstrating the use and application of accounting techniques, and problem-based and blended learning (including group work in first and second years) designed to engage your interest.
